Hey, I bet this question has been asked a thousand times and no one likes me here but whatever, I have a question. Who play bass with Paul Simon on Call me Al? More importantly, who does that solo? These Australian musicians called the Zarb Brothers played a concert with my school orchestra and during one of the rehearsals, they played this song for us. But before playing the song, they tlaked briefly about the bass solo and I think they mentioned that on the album version it was actually a keyboard. However I think they may be mistaken because it sounds like a slapped bass played in reverse. Either way, they played guitar and keyboards/hand drums, so they left that part out during thier performance. But I just downloaded the live and album version and was blown away by the bass solo. On the live it's even faster and you can tell it is actually a musician because the crowd goes nuts. So after that long-winded description that was probably worthless because I doubt anyone will respond anyway, anyone know of the bassist on either of those recordings? Thank you in advance.
